GeneralA film review, after some time. I'd tried the Nikon F5 when I was looking for a go-to film camera for my "film adventure", a couple of years ago. I'd tried several other film cameras then, and picked three to take a closer look at. The Nikon F5 was not one of them, and I ended up selling it after trying it out for a short while - I didn't even bother writing a review then. So, why suddenly now? Because I saw somewhere online someone suggesting it as the "only film camera you'll even need". I'm very suspicious of such blanket statements, not necessarily because the Nikon F5 wouldn't be such a camera (more of that in a while), but because it wouldn't necessarily be such a camera for everyone.
Pros/Cons+ a tank, period. Super construction quality, it will take a very thorough beating
+ its matrix metering must be one of the best in the film camera world, if not actually the best.
+ Very deep customization...
